  • Description

    Once again the hot dry summer weather of California, has resulted in an outbreak of forest fires, that have destroyed several homes and threatened many others, July 21. Throughout California and most of the Western states of America fires fighting teams have been hard pressed to keep the fierce flames under control.

    Last year - one of the worst on record - strong wind carried a roaring blaze dangerously close to the film colonies around Hollywood. Several actors had to move out in a hurry before the advancing flames.

    All available firemen and volunteers keep a 24-hour lookout, so they can reach any outbreak before the wind carries it through the large forests. Throughout the western areas of the United States, both country and city people hope the first rains will soon arrive.
